Panthers Go All Defense in Matt Rhule’s First Draft, Sets NFL History

Panthers coach Matt Rhule hasn’t coached a down in the NFL and already he’s a part of league history, David Newton of ESPN reports.

The Panthers used all seven of their picks in the NFL draft on defensive players the past three days, the most in the common draft era to be made all on defense, according to ESPN Stats & Information research.

Carolina tied the 1985 Cleveland Browns for the most picks on one side of the ball. The Browns used all seven picks on offense.

    This was an interesting move by Matt Rhule considering its his first draft. Hopefully it pays off and I’m sure it will. The panthers could definitely benefit from some defensive talent. Specifically DL Derrick Brown, he’s going to be an outstanding asset for the Panthers. I found on this Scouting Report for Derrick Brown that he was SEC Defensive Player of the Year (2019), Unanimous All-American (2019), has the ideal build for the NFL at 6’5” 326 lbs, and just missed 5 tackles throughout entire 4-year career. These achievements and stats alone prove he was a worthy pick for the Panthers and will be a great addition.
